Writing & Yoga in Andalucia, Spain 2025

We’re going back!


April 2023 at Molino del Rey was gorgeous beyond our imagining. Everything was perfect – the rooms, the setting, the food, the hosts, the surroundings… so we’re returning in 2025 for another divine week.

Radical Restoration in Spain.

April 27 – May 4, 2025

Set in the beautiful nature reserve of Andalucía “Sierra de las Nieves” in Southern Spain, Molino del Rey’s luxury centre hosts our next yoga & writing retreat.

Only 50 minutes from Malaga airport & just 38 km from the magical city of Ronda.

This unique retreat features a balance of structured activity and free time for exploration, creativity, and rest.

Don’t “do” yoga?

No worries – this is a gentle, yin practice for all bodies. No prior experience or skill is necessary to reap the restorative benefits of this practice.

Don’t consider yourself a “writer”?

No worries. If you want to write, like to write, think you can’t write, or have been writing your entire life, the Amherst Writers & Artists method of facilitation invites experimentation in a supportive atmosphere for writers at all levels of confidence and experience.

    “Deepam’s workshops are a joy. Not only the prompts, along with her warmth and her support, but I always come away feeling like I have struck gold, that I have the beginning of a piece of writing that excites and inspires me. The connection with the other writers is real and the writing energy is infectious.”

    ~ Marie L

    Thank you Deepam for a wonderful writing refuge! It was just the inspiration I needed to ignite a part of myself that has lain dormant for too long. I had no idea that I was going to be led to diving as deeply as I did. I am very grateful for the experience.
